I am a 23 yr old male, suffering from thinning hair. I went to a Dr, and he gave minoxydil as part of the treatment, and laser therapy as the other. He uses a laser pen like device, and runs it through my scalp for about 15 min. Well my question is that: everytime he does the laser therapy, my scalp aches a bit. I told him about it, and he says that it is normal, but i need more reassurance.
I am unfamiliar with this “laser pen” he is using, but if you think that the aching follows the use of the laser pen, then I would believe that the laser pen is the cause. Perhaps it would be helpful to read my past blog entries regarding the use of lasers in hair therapy, and more specifically, this blog entry about Low Laser Light Therapy. I’m sorry I couldn’t be more helpful, but if you could get me the actual name of the device, I might be able to research it further.
